SUMMER HOUSING POLICIES
We do not restrict roommate pairings based on sex, gender identity or gender expression. This means that any student can choose to live with one another, regardless of sex, gender identity or gender expression, in a shared room. However, the Residence Life Office will only honor a request mutually made by all parties. If you are interested in gender inclusive housing option we can provide you with a personal and confidential assessment of the available options. Please email Associate Director of Residence Life; Josh Peipock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All summer students are required to have a meal plan during their stay. Students living in Traditional or Suite style rooms must have a Full Meal Plan. Students in Apartment style Housing may choose to have a five meal per week plan.
Students who have medical, psychological or disability related conditions may apply for a housing accommodation. The submitted request and supporting documentation are reviewed carefully on a case by case basis by the Medical Accommodation Committee. Documentation consists of a written evaluation by an appropriate professional (not a relative of the student) that explains the nature of the condition and why the condition results in a need for housing accommodation(s). Students must complete all forms in their entirety and submit them to the Residence Life office, each summer before the deadline of June 8th
or soon after identifying the need (based on date of diagnosis, change in status, etc.). Part of the committee's consideration is the written documentation by the treating professional. A follow‐up conversation with the student and the treating professional by a member of the Health Services and/or Counseling staff may be necessary in some instances. Residence Life and RISD cannot guarantee that students will be provided their preferred accommodation choices, but if a student's preferred choice is not granted RISD will provide equally effective alternatives subject to limitations as outlined in the Student Handbook or our wellness section
The forms can be found at the top of the sidebar on this page.
